Publisher's Summary

At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys....

Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.

Until Violet. No one expects to meet the love of their life at age 13. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.

Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend, Miller, is her one constant, and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.

But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?

Perpetually Depressing Content

This book starts out very promising. The narration also is really good. However, the story is full of sadness and problem after problem…two people constantly being torn away from each other, either by their own doing or outside forces. And the H battles serious illness throughout the story. Really just a downer all the way around. It was well-written but I was not in the right headspace for it. I barely finished (listening at 1.7 speed) and have no desire to continue the series.

This book has all the feels!

OK, yes, second book by Emma Scott and she managed to make me cry again! This book has all the feelings!
Scott’s narrative is poetic and so deeply emotional it kicks me in the guts and tugs at my heartstrings!
Violet and Miller’s story is one for the yearbooks, they are so perfect and destined together that nothing can keep them apart, not school, not illness, not even themselves!

Beautiful story and narration

No one's words get into my head and heart like Emma Scott's can. This was a beautiful story of coming of age, first loves, and heartbreak. I both listened and read, and the narration for Violet and Miller was spot on and made the emotions hit even harder. You get just enough of the other lost boys to get sucked into their stories, and I can't wait to read Holden and Ronan's books.

Wish Miller was my boyfriend.

This was such a sweet, love story. A boy who turns into a man completely devoted to his Violet. Even when a manipulative girl tries to replace her; he stays true to her until the other gives up. This was a very believable story with real life situations. Not crazy about male narrator, but he was just okay.

Amazing start to the series

Violet and Miller's story was absolutely beautiful with a rockstar theme as the cherry on top, this was so realistic, how life teaches you lessons and you learn and grow with them, all the emotions from love to hurt, compassion, etc. are there, how even when they met so young their love grows stronger with time, definitely a must-read book. I can't wait to read the following books in this new series.

Started off strong, turned cheesy

The performance was fine. The story started off really well but about a quarter of the way through started getting cheesy. Then it continued to get cheesier and cheesier. I was really hoping it’d turn around and surprise me. I was disappointed.

Warning:Keep your hands clean when the kids r home

lovely story that hooks you onto the characters and their lives, only to turn super graphic with some intimate moments. Was a bit of a shock as I listened to audiobooks while in the kitchen (wet/doughy hands) only for my little ish one (8) to walk in at just the wrong moment when the story decided to get"v. grown up" 🤣🤣. So don't say you weren't warned !!!

Violet

Violet’s parents are fighting. She is not told why, but she guesses it’s about money.
Miller, is a homeless boy, who lives in a car in the woods. His mother works to keep them together, but Miller, spends most days and nights alone.
Miller spends time with Violet in her room. She gives him food and lets him sleep there.
Miller is a talented musician.
Violet is clever and wants to go to College to be a surgeon, but there is no money. She has to get scholarships and work to pay her way.
Although this is a youthful story, it has depth and interesting characters.
There are incites into type 1 diabetes and scary consequences of the disease.

Absolutely Beautiful

The Girl In The Love Song is an incredible love story.! I loved Miller and Violet, they had such a beautiful bond and went through so much to be togethe. Their story gave me all the feels, Emma Scott is a genius at writing stories that break your heart into a million pieces and put it back together, the lost boys series is absolutely brilliant.

Desiree & Nathan narration was perfect for Violet & Miller. 5🌟 This is one of my favorite audiobooks of 2021.
